Memories of the everyday life of an Italian family/2

We love the mountains. My mum and dad met during a trekking in the  Dolomites. And they passed on us their passion.

Every summer we spent at least 15 days in the mountains. We are really lucky in the Venice region because we enjoy of a stunning nature between the sea and the mountains and everything it’s at a reasonable distance.

I remember the incredibly early departures to trek during the coolest hours; the via ferrata, the effort and the amazing feeling of humility and power at the same time when we reached the summit.

My dad explaining us the secrets of plants and animals and my mum busy picking flowers (sometimes protected species, I have to admit) and making beautiful bouquets to bring home.
